This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. This series of segments features one of Hewlett Packard's greatest open source software stars, Stormy Peters. And yes, every one really calls her Stormy.

Stormy works at OpenLogic where she set up and manages the...

This series of segments features me, Christian Einfeldt, giving a keynote presentation to the OpenOffice.org Conference in Berlin in 2004. I really hesitate to put this footage up on the Archive for several reasons. First, arrogance is the kiss of death to a free open source project, and I am reluctant to do anything that makes it look as if this film or this segment is about me, which it's...
